France

Famous quotes containing the word france:

    In France a woman will not go to sleep until she has talked over affairs of state with her lover or her husband.
    Jules Mazarin (1602–1661)

    I shall not bring an automobile with me. These inventions infest France almost as much as Bloomer cycling costumes, but they make a horrid racket, and are particularly objectionable. So are the Bloomers. Nothing more abominable has ever been invented. Perhaps the automobile tricycles may succeed better, but I abjure all these works of the devil.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
